Hotels in Mykonos
Mykonos is one of the hottest tourist destinations out of the Greek islands and offers an amazing choice of accommodation to its many holidaymakers. You can book your own villa so you can chill poolside, you can stay at an all-inclusive chain hotel with in-house entertainment or treat yourself to a luxury resort with all the trimmings. Aparthotels are also very popular but cheaper alternative with visitors. Whatever you decide to do on your Mykonos vacation, you’re guaranteed sea, sun and stunning sights.
Where to stay
Located on the western part of the island, Mykonos Town is a buzzing tourist hub filled with those seeking sun and partying for their holidays. The town itself is pretty as a picture with white buildings featuring colourful doors and shutters lining the narrow maze-like streets. The Panagia Paraportiani is a must see landmark along with the Kastro and other old churches and gorgeous Greek architecture. The town is packed with cafes and bars as well as museums and galleries giving you plenty to do all day if you choose to spend your day away from your hotel.
For those seeking a quieter Mykonos getaway, head to Aghios Ioannis. Green, pristine and serene, this part of the island is as lovely as it is relaxing. With leafy foliage and stunning sunsets, this is the perfect place for romance, pampering and getting away from it all.
Ornos beach is a busy resort packed with restaurants all overlooking the sea. The white sands look even whiter in the warm Greek sunshine with the turquoise waves gently caressing the shore. Popular with families, Ornos beach is surrounded by a tucked away bay which promises calm waters and a gentle breeze. Relax on a sun lounger, work on your tan and take in all the sights Mykonos has to offer.
What to see
You can’t really have a summer holiday without a beautiful beach and Mykonos has plenty of them to go around. Super Paradise beach is one of the best known on the island and is popular with celeb visitors and glamorous holidaymakers. For quiet days by the seaside opt for Agios Sostis which offers a less busy atmosphere in a more secluded spot. If you’re on a family holiday, there’s no better place to go than Platis Gialos beach.
Everyone knows that seeing the sun set after a day of basking in its rays is a wonderful experience and Little Venice has the absolute best views on the island. The sight of the sun melting into the Aegean Sea will be one you’ll never forget so make a point of planning your day around this wonderful phenomenon. Grab a blanket or towel, a chilled bottle of wine and enjoy.
In the 16th century Mykonos was under Venetian rule which means you can see a lot of influence in the architecture and the most characteristic and impressive of the remaining structures are the historic windmills. Once, in full use and a main source of income for many locals but now they serve as an unexpected site to see. You can find most of them on Chora Hill which also has beautiful views of the rest of Mykonos.
Mykonos Town is full of bars and clubs, packed with revellers. That’s by far the best place on the island to party until sunrise, with choices of different music styles blaring from discos and nightclubs.
Standard Hóra and Little Venice are a bit more laid back but still have loads of bars and pubs to get some drinks in before you go gallivanting through the night.
You can also find some classy Piano bars and lounge bars for a more sophisticated evening.
What to eat
You can get some fabulous food in most places on the island of Mykonos. With fast food places to appease the fussy eaters or those on a hangover and some restaurants serving international cuisine you can stay on the safe side and stick to pasta and burgers. However with sensational Greek food served up in fancy restaurants in Chora, fresh seafood right by the sea in Ornos and fine dining in Paradise Beach, you can truly treat yourself.
If it’s shopping that you’re into then Mykonos town is the main hub, with the most shops and markets to choose from. Venture to the smaller villages where you can find family owned stores that have been going for generations that sell one of a kind souvenirs with an authentic feel. There are many beach shacks along the seafront selling all the necessities such as inflatables, sun cream and novelty towels. Don’t forget to stock up on local produce so you can try and recreate that amazing Greek salad you had on the first night.

Mixed feelings but loved in the end....
Lyndy, West lancs
I arrived in mykonos after staying at santorini and Paros. Our first impressions were that it was beautiful but it was sooooo windy. Then people say it's the windy Isle! We didn't know but even this wind was extreme! It was difficult to sit on balcony and the beach was a definite no no! The town itself is lovely with the typical cyclades winding streets and windmills. Beautiful. However it is also so expensive. Whilst u get this in most towns there is normally some cheap places somewhere if u look hard enough. There isn't in mykonos. The only cheap option to eat was gyros which were fab! Drinks were also expensive but could still get wine for 5 euros. We had 2 nights there and the 2nd one we had z meal and drinks out. This is when mykonos won my heart. The nightlife is fab. The bars were great and I wished we were staying longer with lots more money to spend. But as it was our very last of our holiday we were a bit skint by this point. So if going to mykonos go early in holiday or make sure u have lots of money as mykonos cannot be enjoyed on a budget which is a shame but worth the trip regardless.
The best thing about my stay was ...
The nightlife and town.
